Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Rhythm placement - 2.5
Cleanness - 3.5
Feel - 3.5
Posture - 2
Sound - 3.5

Watch out the Rhytm, you star slighter ahead than the BT and you almost never make it back. For visuasizing the beat, you should feel the subdivision before playing, the start of songs are worth practice for both reasons, we may not get the ringht tempo and we tend to play the first notes too loud.
Cleannes (-1,5) the mix is very dirty, it may be just your hardware, in that case next time open the daw and send an mp3 in adittion to the vid so the instructors can give you a better opinion.
Feel, check out and sing the original in Beavis and Butt head Style, the lines should be sharper. Also you need to be aware of the exact duration of the dampings before your hand shift positions.
The posture is bad and unconfortable, the neck is too low and so is your arm what makes your wrist bend down and it is difficult to bend the strings as you can almost use just the bare strenght of youe fingers, in addition this kind of position doesn't allow you tostretch your fingers. The best way to check the position is to sit down in the same way without a guitar and you will notice that position is unnatural.
Sound, it is kinda messy.....biggrin.gif ......
The most importan thing is the rythm placement.
Thanks for submiting Kaz, sorry for any inapropiate comment on your playing.

I think you might want to improve the rhythmic placing of some chopps and you have many mistakes about muted notes, or misplaced notes...
I know you could have been better

Good attempt but very dirty at many places. Licks were not in time and some notes just didn't come out. You can do this much better.

I agree with Emir - you can do a lot better Kaznie with this one. Try to fix your sound a bit and clean up phrases, it should be great.

Good take, and it looks like your having a great time playing this!
But the timing is off in many places and comes off as sounding sloppy, like your in a hurry to finish.
Try to relax more and focus on getting all the notes in.
